I do not agree on that. Everything that's related to a pad need to be
masked. Unless you add a list of layers, which is just another
(less efficient) representation for a bitmask. Or esplode the pad in
multiple instances to represent a padstack (that would be the cleanest
solution, given some backpointer to correlate them).

But of course that would be a massive modification.
